Hiiii! New food alert recommendation if you are in East Village, love burgers or don’t mind traveling for some delicious food I invite you to try the food from Paul’s “Da Burger Joint.” (131 2nd Avenue is the address it is near the corner of St. Mark’s Place and 2nd Ave.) When in doubt look for the huge burger directly in front of the restaurant. On Saturday I had the privilege of celebrating the 25th anniversary and sampling the new items on the menu.
I enjoyed the selection of different sauces in which we had the option of choosing to put on our food items. My favorite was Paul’s secret sauce as I loaded it on my cheeseburger slider. Another unexpected delightful treat that was served was the Paul’s bacon wrapped jalapeño peppers with lemon garlic sauce. It had just the right amount of kick and the bacon balanced out the texture. I am a bacon lover and once I tasted the bacon wrapped chicken bites with chipotle sauce I was speechless. It was pure stomach joy. If you are looking for a refreshing drink I would be selfish if I didn’t tell you about Paul’s “Da Burger Joint” Vanilla Bean and Bailey’s milkshake it was the right amount of goodness that had me craving more.
They offered live entertainment, their updated menu and roll back pricing from 1989 for this special occasion. Paul’s “Da Burger Joint” has a very cozy, retro and inviting feel the staff is friendly, helpful and lively. Formerly known as “Paul’s Palace” the staff told us great stories of the history, the stars who have visited and the reason why the burgers are so popular huge portion and reasonable pricing.
The decor holds vintage memoribilia, checkered table cloths and is great for a laid back style meal with a group of family and friends. But dont just take my word for it you can test the opinions of critics as well Paul’s “Da Burger Joint” was ranked on The Gothamist “Top 14 Best Burgers in NYC” and they appear on Burger Weekly’s Top 50. Stop by and experience good food and a good time. To the staff thank you for all of your hospitality and I wish you continued success.
